Newton’s Nook – Sweet Treats Blog Hop

The Newton’s Nook Designs Team is hopping along today to share some great Sweet Treats – just in time for Valentine’s day! Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the whole list and hop along and comment for a chance to win!

Today I have a tutorial to show you how to create your own box of chocolates using Newton’s Nook products! Isn’t this so much fun!?! I had a blast creating it and made sure to take photos along the way to make it easy for you to make one too!

I started by die cutting two of the largest hearts and one of the next size down. Then I stamped and colored Heartfelt Roses before die cutting it with the next size down from that. This gives me a box bottom, top and layers for decorating.

Next I created the sides for my box lids. I made one a smidge bigger than the other so they slide together perfectly.

  1. Start with 2 – 1.5×11 inch strips of cardstock matching your lid color. Score them lengthwise at 1/2 inch. Turn and score one at 3 1/4, 6 1/2 and 9 3/4. Score the second one at 3 3/8, 6 3/4 and 10 1/8. Then I made little tick marks about in the center of each section. (See close up photo 3)
  2. On the 1/2 inch side trim little mountain peaks from the center tick mark to the score line on both strips. Then cut the notch off the tab end.
  3. This is a close up of what your strips should look like.
  4. Fold on all your score lines. Then glue the tab to the other side creating 2 triangles. Next, add glue to the mountain peaks so you can adhere them to your box top and bottom.

To adhere the triangles to the lids, I used liquid glue so I could move things if I needed to. Also, I added the smaller triangle first, then layered the other over the top and aligned my heart on top of that.

To decorate my lid, I added the two hearts you saw earlier. First the coral scallop one with liquid glue and then the roses with foam tape. But then I pulled out the banner trio dies and cut one from white cardstock. I chose a sentiment from Heartfelt Love to stamp on it and added it to the box top with foam squares.

For finishing touches I added some clear dew drop hearts across the design. Don’t you love it?!? I’m hoping to make one more using the awesome Love Quarry set for someone special.
